Project Objective:

USAID/Liberia has engaged DELTA to conduct a conflict assessment for Liberia. The purpose of the assessment in Liberia is as follows:

· Update USAID/Liberia’s understanding of current, emerging and potential conflict dynamics and vulnerabilities,

· Identify impacts of potential conflict and possible programming approaches to prevent, manage and mitigate conflicts; and

· Inform implementation of USAID/Liberia’s 2019-2024 Country Development Cooperation Strategy (CDCS) through conflict-sensitive programming.

· Inform and consider possible cross border (e.g. Guinea, Sierra Leone, Ivory Coast) issues that could increase the likelihood of conflict (e.g.maritime issues, health issues, elections).

The intended outcome of the assessment is:

  • (1) to improve the USAID Mission’s understanding of the drivers and mitigating factors of conflict in Liberia, and
  • (2) (2) to provide USAID with recommendations for providing assistance in such a way as to effectively prevent, manage, or mitigate violent conflict, or at minimum do no harm.
